The nation’s largest teachers union scrubbed its website of an agenda item that announced a campaign to push critical race theory — the ideology that dubs America as irredeemably racist — in all 50 states across more than 14,000 school districts that the union works with. Over the July 4th holiday weekend, the National Education Association (NEA) held its annual representative assembly. The union passed an agenda item that pledged to “share and publicize” “information already available on critical race theory (CRT) — what it is and what it is not.” Following negative press coverage of the resolution from primarily right-of-center news outlets, Jessica Anderson, the executive director of Heritage Action, uncovered that the NEA removed the agenda item from its website. The passage of the agenda item flew in the face of several Democrats and many in the mainstream media who claim that critical race theory doesn’t exist. Reason columnist Robby Soave opined that “many progressives rested their entire defense of CRT on the idea that it’s a very narrowly defined aspect of elite law school training.”
